So what IMAP client is everyone using?


#1

Thunderbird is giving me an extreme desire to stab my face repeatedly.

I’m looking for an IMAP client that:

a) doesn’t just randomly just stop receiving any new mail until I restart it
b) doesn’t repeatedly say that it can’t copy messages to my sent folder (although it seems to anyway)
c) lets me keep the client open on multiple computers at the same time without any drama

Any suggestions? I’m on Win32, but I’m willing to use freaking pine on my shell account at this point if it means an end to these headaches.

Just stop drinking it! :slight_smile:

freaking pine on my shell account

With a good connection, a little Putty and string, and mostly text email, freaking pine is freaking good. Some dogs prefer Mutt.

You could try PC-Pine from washington.edu for Windows. That may be better than using a shell approach.

I agree about TB being a bit neurotic. Perhaps it will be fixed in a few versions time?

Well well TB 1.5.0.4 popped up today. Supposed to be some IMAP bugs fix although I see someone has commented that they keep having problems syncing imap accounts!

Ho Hum.

Ubuntu is an owesome OS, and I have no problems what so ever using imap through T-bird with it. I was running windows no too long ago, but I got a virus through a java app and it killed my boot record and some other fun things. I just switched to linux, and it’s been smoother running ever since then.
